How To Avoid Having Your Domain Hijacked

Written By: Fred Bunzl

A few days ago I posted an item about how domain “slammers” go about their fraudulent business and what you can do stop them hijacking your domains.

In that post I included an outfit called “Domain Registry of America” (DROA). At the time DROA was taken to court it was a domain name reseller partnered with ICANN registrar eNom.com.

Since then DROA has not died. On the contrary, despite their domain slamming history, they have somehow been able to obtain top-level official approval. So DROA is now an ICANN accredited domain name registrar operating under the name: Brandon Grey Internet Services – NameJuice.com.

But have their dubious practices changed?

According to another ICANN Registrar: “You are correct in that NameJuice is the ICANN accredited DROA. I can’t count the amount of times we complained to ICANN, and they honestly don’t seem to have done much, if anything.”

Other outfits recently accused of domain slamming include these web sites:
DomainUpdateCenter.com
DomainNotificationCentral.com
Both of these forward to:
UpdateCenter.us
